Master of Pharmacy (MPharm)


The MPharm is the only degree which is acceptable as the first step towards a career as a pharmacist. On completion of your MPharm you will be required to undertake pre-registration training before qualifying as a registered pharmacist.The Master of Pharmacy is a four year undergraduate programme.

The MPharm degree is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and is awarded by the University College London. The degree entitles graduates, after a further year of pre-registration training, to sit the examination of the GPhC and register as a pharmacist in Britain. British registration is recognised in other member states of the EU. Please take some time to read the GPhC’s Code of conduct for pharmacy students.

The MPharm is the only undergraduate programme available at UCL School of Pharmacy, so all our teaching is tailored specifically for this course. Our programme is designed to integrate the teaching, learning and understanding of pharmaceutical science in the context of pharmacy practice. We will provide you with the opportunity to become confident and competent professionals committed to lifelong educational development.

The programme includes contact with patients from the start through hospital visits and patient interviews. It also gives you the chance to study abroad during the fourth year. The School takes part in the Erasmus scheme and other student exchange programmes, which offer the opportunity for student exchanges with various universities in Europe and worldwide.
